Like any (very) long running television show with a set format, it's important to mix it up every now and again. America's Next Top Model is no exception, where Tyra Banks constantly preaches inclusion and the beauty 'within us', over the past few years she has done special seasons for short models, plus size models and now she's broadened it out further to do let male models compete as well.
Although the skinny 5ft10 girls across the US will be crying out, distraught at one more chance of theirs to make it onto the coveted runways of world renowned and revered designers made that much more difficult, the rest of us will delight in our screens being graced by all variety of beautiful man. This follows a major shake-up earlier this year when Jay Manuel, Jay Alexander and Nigel Barker, all of whom have been involved in the show since season one, did not have their contracts renewed.
The inclusion of men in the new series is not the only big change: the show will also now begin airing in the summer, rather than the spring, in an attempt by CW to up increase original programming, reports E! Online. Their appearance not only supports equal rights and equal opportunities, it also encourages a more tumultuous house dynamic with more possibilities of romantic relationships, jealousy and thus catty fighting that is inherent within the show.

Alice Dellal made a cheeky appearance at last weeks London Fashion Week, gracing the runway wearing a backless apron, with nothing to hide away her bottom.
The nearly nude display was part of designer Pam Hogg's catwalk show at London's Freemason Hall on Tuesday (September 18th), during which Miss Dellal modelled an all white ensemble consisting only of a backless white bib dress, nurse's style headwear and platforms. She later made another revealing walk down the runway, dressed in a hardly there, black dress that hardly covered her breasts or bum - all in the name of fashion.
Hogg is no stranger to a little controversy on the catwalk, as earlier this year she whipped up an unusual ensemble piece for Jaime Winstone, one that drew more gasps and giggles that it did cries of awe and a sense of creative inspiration. Still, she is a designer who is cherished by a number of celebs and has had her original designs worn by the likes of Lady GaGa, Jessie J, Tyra Banks, Rihanna and Claudia Schiffer.

It's 1993. Some Hollywood bigshot reads an article in GQ magazine about a nutty bar called the Coyote Ugly in Manhattan. They only have women bartenders, see, and they, like, dance on the bar with fire and stuff! And they don't serve water. If someone orders water they hose down the crowd! Holy mackerel, what a nutty place!

As if searching for some nonexistent middle ground between the cartoon raunchiness of "South Park" and the innocuous banality of a cheap children's Christmas special, Adam Sandler has now weaseled his way into the animation and holiday genres with "Adam Sandler's 8 Crazy Nights."
A sub-formulaic slap in the face to seasonal cheer, it's a movie about an acrimonious, 33-year-old layabout with Sandler's voice and Sandler's doltish manner whom we're also supposed to laugh along with as he makes fun of fat little kids and kicks port-a-potties down snowy hills with people inside. But the movie also expects us to view him as a big jerk with a tormented soul who is badly in need of a "Christmas Carol"-type personality breakthrough.
Sentenced after a drunken rampage to doing community service as a youth basketball referee (depicted in exactly one scene of the movie), the cartoon Sandler is taken in by a fellow ref who feels sorry for him -- a kindly, seizure-prone, 70-year-old midget gimp with a shrill, whimpering, falsetto voice (also Sandler's). But he treats the old man (and everyone else) like garbage until he finally has an overdue cry about how his parents died when he was 12, then sees the error of his ways just before the credits roll.
